I've been to several glass places throughout my travels, but never seem to visit at a time to see an actual demonstration. This place does demos frequently. It was very educational and entertaining. The art is beautiful. Can't wait to come back and being the kids for a longer demo (on Saturdays). Loved the light fixture with the fish swimming... More

These people are really true artists. Its amazing to watch the live Glassblowing Demonstrations. Staff is so friendly, they show each step of glass blowing, answered my questions. After the demonstration we browsed their showroom. So many amazing pieces...felt like we were in a museum. Each pieces were spectacular and also little expensive.

Acclaimed head gaffer and owner, Tim deJong's work, and his artists' work, is a must see. Just Google his name, and you can quickly see he is kind of a big deal - a big deal who is humble and passionate about educating the public about his craft. Stay for a free demonstration and get any question you've ever had... More

We made a stop at the Wimberly Glass works and were treated to the artist making items in his workshop. Lots of work and artistic ability to make these items. These are NOT your dogs, cats, ect that you see glass blowers making. These are elegant light fixtures, vases, jewelry, plates, ect that take a lot of time and talent... More

Many flowers, platters, objet d'art but the one that really spoke to me had been sold. Genius glass artist Justin showed me a picture of a rainbow trout he had done with a silver crackled finish that made the piece come to life and swim away. Oh how I wish I could have seen it! This place is not to... More

We were staying in the Wimberley area in mid-May, weather was unusually cool for this time of year, great afternoon to sit and view the glass blowers work. They were gearing up for a big show (May 24th). They were making clear glass chandelier shades/globes (?) and they were beautiful. As lovely as some of the colored glass work is,... More

Wimberly Glassworks is a very educational place. The staff teaches each step of glass blowing. They answer questions as they create the piece. However, do not expect to take anything home on a family budget. It is very expensive to purchase the glassworks. Enjoy with your eyes and dream of the next time you get to come again.

So glad that we decided to stop in. We were in luck that they were having a demonstration of how they create their pieces. The person doing the demonstration was friendly and explained what he was doing and was willing to answer questions. After the demonstration we browsed the showroom. Some amazing pieces.

We stopped by here on our first afternoon near Wimberley. The glass works were exquisite! Most pieces were priced well over our budget, but we did purchase a few pieces of jewelry, a Christmas ornament and a hummingbird feeder. The vases, wall art, and lighting features are beautiful. We also enjoyed the glassblowing demonstration. Definitely worth a stop! Some of... More

If you're looking for an artful way to spend a few hours...this is it! Just stopped by because we saw it on our way to Austin and I'm so glad we did! We were able to see a full demonstration of glass-blowing and the artisans were so informative. Beautiful works of art - yes, these are high-end pieces and priced... More
